announced she is not going to campaign in 2012 for barack obama. >> host: the role of jesse jackson in president president s early political career. >> guest: that's very up known. i was very fortunate in being able to find about that. jesse jackson is still a highly regarded figure in the african-american community in chicago. and when obama started running for the u.s. senate, he was advised to go to jackson and get some help from jackson regarding foreign policy issues, domestic policy issues, but even more important, his speaking -- his oratory needed some work and they thought jesse could help him. and jackson agreed to do so. and every saturday for a whole year, barack obama was invited to the push rainbow meeting that jackson held, where jackson worked with obama on his oratory and his delivery of speeches, and he improved tremendously. guess what? since he was elected president, president barack obama has not invited jesse jackson to the white house once. he is totally, completely cut himself off from jesse jackson. no one seems to know exactly why, except that it appears th
with the sewer system improvement project. thank you very much. >> thank you very much. ms. jackson. >>> good afternoon. i want to say thank you to the former chair for the work that you've done. i've been knowing for many, many years and worked with for many, many years, and you the chair and the vice-chair i've been knowing for -- i'm not going to say how long. >> thank you. [laughter] >>> but i want to congratulate the both of you for the work that's coming before you and the work that you have done in working with my community. i'm take talking about bayview hunters point community. and i'm looking for you to continue doing the good work that needs to be done that has not been done by the city and county of san francisco. and i will be coming back before you. and i know my three commissioners who were reappointed, i am so happy. and i'm going to ask the secretary when it comes to the next public comment to read what i have given to her so everybody can hear her plainly that you might not hear me. thank you very much. >> thank you, ms. jackson. terrence jones. >>> commissioners, i'm terren
that to our attention. well done. any other comments on item number 10? >> excuse me, espinola jackson. i'm really not sure [speaker not understood]. but when i see roberts rules of order i get concerned, not knowing what the change is actually going to be. will it be that you will be moving from one area to 5 25 golden gate, all of your services and everything, from the building that you're now in? >> mr. moran. >> the changes are relatively minor, addresses one of them, the order of business that was in the rules of order were changed sometime ago, but we didn't bother changing the rules of order to reflect that. that has been changed. there was a change in law about noticing for rate changes. so, that's been conformed. we don't actually operate by roberts rules of order. we operate by our own rules of order, which are much simpler. it gives the chair a great deal of authority to do whatever seems best at the time. and we do everything by resolution. >>> and the other question would be whether or not you would be moving your meeting time to 5 25, you know, not meeting here. >> meetings
really. it was 1824, jackson beat adams. it went to a vote by the house of representatives. adams won that vote and became the sixth president of the united states. jackson crushed him, though, four years later. a bit of history for you this morning. >>> legendary american feminist and author gloria steinem is leading the fight to stop the war on women. that fight is also the cover story of ""ms." magazine. >> what it means is first controlling reproduction. you know, we're accustomed in this country to talking about production. we forget the controlling reproduction is even more important. so it would put women's bodies under literally government control with the human life amendment. it's also about refusing to support equal pay, which is quite astounding because i don't remember any presidential candidate who at least verbally has not agreed to support equal pay. and it is also interfering with such things as the violence against women act, even though in actually fact, more women have been killed by their husbands or boyfriends since 9/11 than americans were killed in 9/11, iraq,
in beltsville, maryland, bishop harry jackson has been a major opponent of gay marriage. where doeit s in thbile that homosexuals shouldn't marry? >> it says it all over. start with deuteronomy, leviticus, first corinthians, go on and on. >> it says homosexual shouldn't marry in the bible? no, there's a prohibition against homosexual activity. >> i take the bible with the utmost seriousness. yet i realize that there are times when the bible misbehaves. it is not at its best self. the bible promotes genocide, the bible lessens half of the human race in its dehumanizing statements when it talks about women. the bible says a lot of things. >> many pastors in maryland and elsewhere have weighed in on this issue. reverend al sharpton -- >> this is not an issue about gay or straight, this is an issue about civil rights. you can not be for civil rights for african-americans but not for gays and lesbians. >> reverend william owens on the issue of civil rights -- >> when i was a boy, you couldn't drink out of a white water fountain, you couldn't go to a white restaurant, you couldn't go to a white hotel.
, another tremendous example of a vicious, vicious election. john quincy adams versus andrew jackson. andrew jackson was accused of being an adulterer and bigamist because of a cork in the divorce proceedings of his wife, rachel from her first marriage. this something that was circulated around the whole country called the handbill was a pamphlet that was posted throughout the country, showing the coffins. these are the man andrew jackson had supposedly killed, either as a general or ordering the execution. so being caught a bigamist, an adulterer and murderer and having them spread around the country widely wasn't that unusual. we like to think the good old days in powdered weeks. politics have always been a nasty business and it's always been a sharp knife business in the very beginning of presidential politics. >> host: is the power of the presidency changed over 44 different president? >> guest: well, i started out in "don't know much about the american presidents" to look at the very, very basic question of why we have a president. 225 years ago we just celebrated the constitution day a
have anything to add since this came out of your office? >> no, commissioner. >> yes. ms. jackson. >>> espinola jackson. when i recertify, you know, i have some concerns as other people in my community because a lot of the contractors were dee-certified sometime ago. and we are mostly concerned about the local hiring aspect that the city approved. but the one problem that i have with the city and county of san francisco is that we have compliance officers, mostly all of the departments. but we don't have state certified compliance officers or federal. and what happens is, i mentioned to director harrison in the hallway 2001 day, i said, you don't have anyone that can go out on these job sites to see whether or not the people that are on these jobs are from the city and city and county of san francisco. he says to me, well, espinola, all i do is put on my hard hat and i go on a job site. * i said, yes, look who you are. you're the money man. so, you can do what you please. but you don't write reports to the state about the contractors and whether or not they are abiding by the law
, urge president obama to fire for lisa jackson. if she could do that, i'd vote for her. >> she's the head of the epa and once they're in office reliable votes for president obama if he wins. >> of course. >> paul: one surprise before we go, heather wilson has been closing the republican there, a tough state because mitt romney isn't going to win that state, but that may be one to look at, 'cause she's been gaining. coming up in our second half hour, with the national polls tied up all eyes are on independents. we'll check in with pollster witt ayers who has new numbers. with all 135 house seats up. a look at what the 113th congress might look like and a roundup of other measures on the ballot in states across the country. including a big showdown in california. new pink lemonade 5-hour energy? 5-hour energy supports the avon foundation for women breast cancer crusade. so i can get the energized feeling i need and support a great cause? i'm sold. pink lemonade 5-hour energy? yeah and a portion of every sale goes to the avon foundation for women breast cancer crusade. i'm sold. n
this time, i think mitt romney is in trouble in florida. jackson bill -- jacksonville is in a foreign place. it is home to swing voters, undecideds, independents, single moms. growing population of non-cuban hispanics to be democratic. -- who leave the democratic. palm beach county is extremely important. it leans democratic, but mitt romney people feel they have made important inroads, project early with the jewish community who they say they're not comfortable with the presidency of on israel. -- the presidents stance on israel. >> what about voted on election day in the state of florida? is the state prepared, and could there be another possible repeat of what happened in 2000? >> statistically you would think of it do not favor something -- like what happened in 2000 again, but of course it could happen again. secondly, the big concern is the fact that we have historically long ballot. in florida, as in many states, a lot of those people but only in the major elections. they are paying attention to the race between president obama and mitt romney. there will vote on tuesday. when they g
